Looking back at 2012

January - I held the #ZOMGBloggersBash, a bloggers party to celebrate a year of Rockalily, and the launch of a lipstick shade named after Zoe from London Lipgloss.

It was one of the most nervewracking things I've done! The whole pub was hired out, so it was a big space to fill! But fill it we did, phew!

February - My lipstick was featured in Hello magazine as perfect for Valentine's Day.

I was also featured in The Sun magazine Fabulous

March: I won the twitter business award #SBS from Theo Paphitis and took my mate Pip with me to go and meet him.

April: It was Viva Las Vegas time! Viva Las Vegas is the world's largest rockabilly convention, and 2012 was my second visit. It's colourful, fun and pretty inspiring all round.

May: I opened my very own hair salon! Eeeek! Rockalily Cuts was born. I also got Ellington the dog. Stinky.

June: I managed to get tickets to the Hackney Weekender, a free music festival hosted by BBC Radio 1. I had such a blast, and it reignited my love for dance music. I had missed dancing.

July: The little Rockalily family went and helped out at my favourite London event, the Chap Olympiad

August: With my renewed love of dancing, I headed out to a UK garage night and flipping loved it!

September: Ticking another resolution off my list by having a celebrity in the salon. Sabina Kelley visited us for the three days she was at the Tattoo Convention signing calenders. We loved seeing every morning and getting the tattoo gossip!

October: It was my big 3-0 birthday! I went to a local pub, and had a ball. Lucie even brought me out a cake (while I cringed inside a little!)

October was also the month me and Ellington appeared in the People newspaper's magazine.

I also got a new tattoo for my birthday - woohoo!

November:  My first column in new tattoo magazine Things and Ink got published. I didn't start writing a book as I had vaguely wanted to in January, but at least this is a start hey?!

December: Having our first staff party felt like a great milestone to reach!

I was also short listed for a local business award, which powers me on to make 2013 even more productive than the last!

What a year! I reckon I could have easily included a few more awesome things, but I had to try and be selective I guess.

How was your 2012?
